Dear partner

We are delighted to invite you to the 2014 editions of the Exadata, Exalogic & Manageability and of the Servers and Storage Partner Community Forums for EMEA partners, which will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, on 1-2 and 2-3 April 2014.

The amount and richness of experiences and skills that Oracle partners have developed around the above areas are a key asset for the partners, customers and for Oracle. Sharing that experience, customer cases and best-practices among partners constitutes the core of the forums.

Through presentations by Oracle solutions experts you will learn the latest on the different solution areas and the best way to go to market together. One-on-one sessions with Oracle executives can help to boost the relationship between your company and the Oracle organisation at local level and facilitate increased sales engagement.

You can review the detailed agendas for both forums below:

Both forums will be held at the same hotel in the beautiful city of Prague, so that partners interested in both areas can attend the two events and minimizing their travel costs.

TCO Comparison: Oracle Exadata vs IBM P-Series

Cost Comparison for Business Decision-makers
Oracle Exadata Database Machine vs. IBM Power Systems
How to Weigh a Purchase Decision
October 2012

Download full report here

In this research-based  white paper conducted at the request of Oracle, The FactPoint Group compares the cost of ownership of the Oracle Exadata engineered system to a traditional build-your-own (BYO) solution, in this case an IBM Power 770 (P770) with SAN storage.  The IBM P770 was chosen given it is IBM’s current most popular model, based on FactPoint primary and secondary research and IBM claims, and because at least one of the interviewed customers had specifically migrated from a P770 to Exadata, affording us a more specific data point for comparison.

This research found that Oracle Exadata:

  • Can be deployed more quickly and easily requiring 59% fewer man-hours than a traditional IBM Power Systems solution.
  • Delivers dramatically higher performance typically up to 12X improvement, as described by customers, over their prior solution. 
  • Requires 40% fewer systems administrator hours to maintain and operate annually, including quicker support calls because of less finger-pointing and faster service with a single vendor. 
  • Will become even easier to operate over time as users become more proficient and organize around the benefits of integrated infrastructure.
  • Supplies a highly available, highly scalable and robust solution that results in reserve capacity that make Exadata easier for IT to operate because IT administrators can manage proactively, not reactively.  Overall, Exadata operations and maintenance keep IT administrators from “living on the edge.”  And it’s pre-engineered for long-term growth.

Finally, compared to IBM Power Systems hardware, Exadata is a bargain from a total cost of ownership perspective:  Over three years, the IBM hardware running Oracle Database cost 31% more in TCO than Exadata.

New whitepaper: Evolution from the Traditional Data Center to Exalogic: An Operational Perspective

IT organizations are struggling with the need to balance the day-to-day concerns of data center management against the business level requirements to deliver long-term value. This balancing act has proven difficult and inefficient: systems and application management tools are resource intensive and traditional infrastructure management architectures have developed over time on a project by project basis. These traditional management systems consist of multiple tools that require administrators to waste time performing too many steps to handle routine administrative tasks. Operational efficiency and agility in your enterprise are directly linked to the capabilities provided by the management layer across the entire stack, from the application, middleware, operating system, compute, network and storage. Only when this end to end capability is provided will we experience the full benefit of a scalable, efficient, responsive and secure datacenter.

Managing Exalogic is substantially less complex and error prone than managing traditional systems built from individually sourced, multi-vendor components because Exalogic is designed to be administered and maintained as a single, integrated system (Figure 1). It is at the forefront of the industry-wide shift away from costly and inferior one-off platforms toward private clouds and Engineered Systems.

Read the full whitepaper "Evolution from the Traditional Data Center to Exalogic: An Operational Perspective".
